Danish Mughal saw these fellows at a hotel, busy in studying and he couldn’t resist taking these pictures. We are glad he did and we are glad Muhammad Waqas Memon shared the original post. We then come to know these kids better when Ms. Asifa Khan recognized one.
“Future is not that bleak. Saw these young pathan boys on a dhaba behind tariq road doing their school home work. Their 3 older brothers run this chai dhaba while living and sleeping on the same place and its so good to see that younger ones are continuing their studies. I got astonished and decided to take a picture when one of them started reciting this loudly:
‘Afrad Ke Hathon Mein Hai Aqwam Ki Taqdeer
Har Fard Hai Millat Ke Muqaddar Ka Sitara’
Pakistan is growing Pakistan is studying.”
“The boy in blue is Sadiq, I was his class teacher at smart school. He was a new admission there and joined in a mid of session.
I thought he wouldn’t be able to compete in a class with children above his caliber and resources. Despite of language barriers, Sadiq proved himself and got 3rd position in first monthly assessment and came 1st in mid terms.” Asifa Khan commented.
“I’m feeling so proud of him right now. Please share!” she added and indeed it sure is a proud moment for us all too.
